The 19th Policy Meeting on Admissions to Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria has approved 160 and above as the national minimum benchmark for admission for the year 2019 into public universities.
The meeting held at Bola Babalakin Auditorium, Gbongan, Osun State, on Tuesday also approved 140 as minimum UTME score for admission into private universities.
For public polytechnic, 120 UTME score was approved, while 110 score was approved as the least score for admission into private polytechnic.
Jkcyno blog gathered that this new approval didn’t go down well with most Nigerians as they are of the opinion that it would further dwindle the standard of our educational system which is already in coma.

I agree with this totally. I dont think lowering the standards is the solution, i think correcting the errors in the system first. The Niferin Educational system has failed woefully, and #jamb is only lowering their scores to cover up for their imcomptences..
